We regularly advise Korean corporations across industries, from automotive to technology to financial services, on sector-defining M&A transactions, including multibillion-dollar acquisitions and joint ventures. We also advise major global private equity firms with Korean portfolio companies on key transactions and other strategic matters.

Our Korea capital markets team brings exceptional experience advising on the full spectrum of debt and equity transactions, including high-yield debt issuances. We regularly advise on both US-registered and unregistered offerings, drawing on a comprehensive understanding of the Korean market from extensive experience working with companies operating in the region.

Drawing on impressive experience with major projects, Latham advises on energy and infrastructure project finance and development with a nexus in Korea.

We also represent clients facing high-stakes disputes, class action litigation, intellectual property litigation, and sensitive investigations.

Because of Latham’s local presence in Seoul, strong working relationships with top local law firms, ability to connect clients to Latham’s powerful global platform, and track record advising major Korean and global companies and investment banks across the region, we offer clients robust advice and counsel, whether they are in Korea or anywhere else in the world.
